Limewire and java Install

I have installed both Limewire and java correctly to my knowledge but it still does not run indicating I did something wrong. What do I need to do to run Limewire. Here is my error message.

Starting LimeWire...
Java exec not found in PATH, starting auto-search...
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /usr/lib/ hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.4.x or newer from <java's Website>
Java exec found in /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_01/bin/
Suitable java version found [/usr/java/j2re1.4.1_01/bin/java = 1.4.1_01]
Configuring environment...

Something went wrong with LimeWire.
Maybe you're using the wrong version of Java?
(LimeWire is tested against and works best with with Sun's JRE, Java 1.4+)
The version of Java in your PATH is: line 117: java: command not found

It's telling you that you need to upgrade run:

java -version

go here and get version 5

What about that message told you that it was the wrong version. I mean, yes there was a mesage saying maybe the wrong version but the version I was using, I thouhgt meant the criteria.
